Recently.... my window is behaving weired. When I click anywhere or try to do anything, windows just open up a 'windows search'. I looked at some of the community pages... and performed few things suggested... It worked fine for few hours but again went back to the same problem. I am told XP has this as a known problem !!!

The problem was fixed.. but it keeps coming back ever few days.

Like the computor works fine and then I gets the same problem. When I type the command (regsvr32 /i shell32) problem disappears... again after few days it goes back to same... Again when I type commands problem disappears and so on....
